AI service and advising, registration of inseminations is an important part of ABAE activities. ABAE has licenced about 400 technicians who make 300 insemination in average per year. In 2017, the most 1st inseminations were done by Tiit Kahur – 3986.
Cattle AI is well developed and spread in Estonia. 84% of progeny is born out of AI. In 2017, there were 186781 inseminations. The pregnancy rate of the 1st inseminations was 51.9%, 1.9 inseminations per pregnancy. We organize workshops and seminars. In cooperation with University of Life Sciences, basic courses for AI technicians are arranged. The registration of inseminations is regulated by the breeding law. More and more technicians apply for the right to insert inseminations into the database themselves. Please turn to the herdbook manager or your regional breeding consultant to assist you in applying for the rights to register your cattle inseminations into the database yourself.
